  1. After my new gardens are installed, what do I need to do to make the plants thrive?

  2. Almost all plants thrive as a result of the following routine maintenance:
  3. Will I get tired of looking at the same landscape all year?

  4. Luckily for all of us, gardens are constantly evolving, and look different from season to season and year to year. The plants in your garden will offer different visual interest as they mature and grow larger. The shapes of your plants will change as will their size. As the plants grow larger, they will also grow closer together, and the blooming rhythm of the plants may fluctuate from one year to the next. One easy way to slightly modify the look of your garden is to use different types of mulch from year to year, from light to dark.
  5. Does it matter when I water my lawn and plant materials?
  6. Yes, it is most effective to water your lawn and plant materials in the early morning, as evaporation is at its lowest level. In addition, any excess water will dry during the day, which is important because standing water may encourage fungus growth. You may want to consider an irrigation system that can be set to come on and shut-off automatically.
  7. How does Artistic Landscapes determine if they did a great job?

  8. We ask you, because we view each project not as an isolated job but as the beginning or continuation of a long-term partnership. At the end of each project, we will provide you with a survey asking for your feedback. In addition to the results of the survey, we measure ourselves by determining how well the plants are doing in your garden. We want all of the plants that we install for you not just to survive, but to thrive.

    We believe that by providing you a thriving landscape that meets your goals, offering you creative solutions to your individual needs, and being consistently responsive, that you will be completely satisfied with your relationship with Artistic Landscapes.
